Camp Kwena

Attraction

When going on a horse trail through the game reserve, we had to find a place for our children to be entertained while we were on the trail. We booked the children into Camp Kwena. Here the children are supervised by really excellent staff and are kept busy for two hours. The children enjoyed themselves thoroughly.
